Performance Development will maintain the skill work they have been learning in the Academy, but will incorporate a larger endurance component to the training. The swimmers will be expected to commit to more sessions, in order to be ready for the Middlesex County Championships. It is important at this stage that swimmers develop all four strokes to compete in a wide range of events.
Swimmers will also be introduced to dry land training, which will take place twice per week. This is basic athletic training, involving body weight exercises, balance work, core stability and movement skills.
